State police, assisted by Clinton Township emergency personnel, help clean the road and direct traffic following a three-car crash at 3 p.m. Friday on 6646 Route 405 in Muncy.
According to police, the first car was stopped in it's lane, facing east, waiting to turn into a parking lot when a second car crashed into it from behind. This sent the first car into the opposing lane of traffic, causing it to spin completely around. A van traveling in the opposite lane swerved to miss the first car, causing the van to crash into an embankment.
"Everybody was up walking around when I got here, I didn't see any major injuries. They all went to the hospital to get checked out," said state police Tpr. Roger Hoffman. "Sometimes with things like this, major injuries may not present themselves right away."
